you. when international crises happen, you weigh in no matter where you are. and president obama is weighing in right now with clear support for israel, but he's also put putting the weight of the united states behind the idea of de-escalation, encouraging israel to not, for example, start the ground war they are threatening to start. that position is essentially where most of the world is with this conflict right now. the head of the united nations went to egypt today where he would appeal personally for deescalating the violence. why did he go to egypt? after ousting hosni mo bark, negotiations are going on as we speak and i hope we will reach something soon that will stop the violence and counter-violence. the whole world is working on trying to deescalate this conflict. the european union weighed in today as did russia. russia preparing a u.n. resolution calling for a cease fire. probably our closest ally abroad in matters of war and peace is britain, and they are taking the same line as president obama, although they are being even more direct about it. the foreign secretary sa

you're watching this right now. president obama's solution to all this is to make a deal centered around increasing taxes on the wealthy which will go a good part of the way to raising the $1.6 trillion in new revenue that he wants to raise over the next decade in his attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to let the bush era tax cuts expire. if that happens, the top tax rate on income would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second top rate would go from 33% to 36%. now this is what president obama campaigned on. he's been vague about the specific numbers since his re-election which suggests that he may compromise on the actual rates in order to get a deal. there are other taxes as well that he's talking about. taxes on investment gains would also go up. the capital gains tax could go from 15% to 20% and dividend taxes would go from 15% to the income tax rate. as i showed you, 39.6%. mitt romney argue this is would hurt individuals with savings and who own dividend paying stocks. but investment gains are enjoyed by the

he had not actually done. but what happened right before that at that debate was president obama defending susan rice and hillary clinton directly, by their titles, and condemning as offensive mitt romney trying to say that that attack was being covered up or that the country was being misled about it. that is what we saw again today on full blast, at the president's first press conference after being re-elected. the beltway common wisdom on this is that president obama is picking a fight with his secretary of state nomination if he does pick susan rice for that position. and when the beltway accuses you of picking a fight, they always mean, oh, no, no, you shouldn't do that. but seeing the president up there talking about this today with such fire in the belly and seeing as he did that as well in the debate when the same subject came up, i think this may be something more than just picking a fight. there's plenty of reason to be angry, to be concerned about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. it is very much worth being angry about the people who carried out that attack,
